Treatment of accompanying symptoms

Speak to your doctor regarding the treatment of accompanying symptoms of multiple myeloma, such as anaemia, increased brittleness of the bones, infection and pain and take corresponding precautionary measures yourself. Consult your doctor upon the first signs of complaints and inform any doctor treating you (including your dentist or eye specialist) of your illness.

Ask your doctor about matters to which you should pay special attention in terms of accompanying symptoms, always take medicine precisely as prescribed and take advantage of prophylactic inoculations. It is not correct that myeloma patients should not be vaccinated; for vaccinations with vaccines that destroy bacteria or viruses there is no greater risk to myeloma patients than to other patients.
